Nothing Gold Can Stay by Brenda Dahl


Available to buy on…

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

by Robert Frost

I woke very early this morning to capture the beauty of the sunrise… I seriously enjoyed chasing the sunrise, chasing my next shot, and most of all, breathing in the beauty of a much needed commodity, WHEAT~!

Photography is the only way to capture “time in a bottle” and the everlasting scent of the moment.

    Terrific comp and capture Brenda ~ early mornings are the best!

  • Oh Yes… I am so glad you see this one…. I use to be an early morning worker and would stare out the windows wishing I could be out photographing instead. I seemed to have forgotten to do this in the last year that I have been unemployed…. My hubby asked me to get up with him yesterday so I would not miss out on the sunrise…. I am so happy I did~!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank You so much for viewing and commenting~!
